I got into cosplay after my partner suggested taking me to Manchester Play Expo for a date, my first thought after seeing the website was that I would love to try a cosplay for it.
The thing I love most about cosplay is meeting other cosplayers and picking up hints and tips on how create and improve costumes, I've only been to one cosplay event and already I have made a few good friends that I will hopefully see again at future conventions.
My proudest moment so far was finding the confidence to take part in my first cosplay masquerade, I'm not normally very confident about going on stage and preforming in front of an audience but I made an exception and it's given me a huge confidence boost.
My greatest achievement in my eyes will be when my Claire Redfield cosplay is completed as it's the most challenging cosplay I plan to do.
